Douglas Adams’The Restaurant at the End of the Universe. I love it. I was reading it the other day, and I was a little surprised at just how often I laughed out loud.
It’s full of satire and outlandish situations. I am really happy I finally got around to reading The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy at the beginning of 2012 and even happier that I’ve continued reading the series.
I am also reading Candide. I started it quite some time ago, but have paused a lot. I haven’t been reading as much as usual in the last month. Too much time for leisurely thought like that afforded by reading a book can be bad if you inevitably think about something really sad.
